Narrator Elle Newlands's gentle Scots burr is perfect for capturing the the young Lady Murine Carmichael, who falls victim to her half-brother's plan to sell her to the Highland warrior Dougall Buchanan for a few horses. Dougall refuses as a matter of honor and even attempts to help her--falling in love in the process. His goal is to wed her--but first he must convince her of his love. As the story evolves, Newlands runs into trouble keeping the various characters' voices distinct, especially in differentiating Dougall and his three brothers. Sometimes even Lady Murine's lilting voice blends with that of the youngest brother. The lack of distinctive character voices makes for a slightly disappointing audio experience.
